The Elder Scrolls Online studio is addressing the allegation of fan art used on cash shop skin

In July 2020, an artist named Relan Daevath created some Elder Scrolls Fanart featuring an incredible looking tattoo flash styled after some of the gods of the game’s fiction. This year, the same artist was surprised to see their desktop again… as part of a Crown Store skin sold by Elder Scrolls Online.

Relan drew attention to Tumblr and the situation Twitter, which in turn drew the attention of Redditors and sparked controversy among fans of the MMORPG. Relan seemed content to give a beaten shrug on the matter, but in one Follow-up tweet overnight he confirmed that ZeniMax Online Studios had contacted him and was investigating.

In fact, just an hour ago ZeniMax posted that it is working to make amends.

“We are aware of the situation with the ESO fan artist. It was never our intention to include community fan art without proper attribution. We are in contact with the artist and will work with them to ensure there is an appropriate solution.”
